Is picking out lint a problem, am I damaging my locs?

So every few days I go through my locs (freeform method, 1.5 months) and try to get lint out. I cover my hair up at night but I accidentally used a very linty towel a few weeks back and there's still lint everywhere. I noticed that when I pick out lint there's just hair everywhere. Should I give it up on the lint and will all this hair falling out affect my locs? My freeforms are naturally very thin and I'm worried about thinning them more.

I leave it in then once in awhile use the charcoal based “detox” from www.dreadlockshampoo.com but it’s not on the site. You have to actually special order it and email her about it.

Have you tried a boar bristle brush? They are great for dusting.

Does it remove lint without hurting the dreads?

Oil depends on race in a way. Just that African textured hair absorbs it like a sponge so could use more. Other textures you can use aloe, or oil, rarely as needed. I tend to use it rarely after washing, I add just a lil to a big pitcher of water pour it on, wait a few seconds then do a partial rinse, not to rinse it out, but spread it through and remove excess.

if I don’t use aloe I use jojoba or the scratch attack aunt vicki makes, but coconut, avocado, Moroccan, or africas best work too.

if African textured, just apply more often, and could be more directly (as apposed to in water) 

Other questions, mold, aunt vicki makes “rot knot” because my dreads are very long I use an entire bottle. But you should use enough to really get them so the rot knot penetrates to the core and are well saturated. Leave in 10 min, then rinse well, then wash as usual.

buildup and lint, she also makes a charcoal based “detox” (gritty slightly so keep eyes closed tightly)

this super cleans.

note- detox rot knot, and scratch attack might still not be on her website. You might need to special request them.

her website (Etsy) http://www.dreadlockshampoo.com
